Author Regi Boehme, a certified occupational therapy instructor in neuro-developmental treatment (NDT), offers practical treatment ideas in this revised edition of her workshop manual. The material in this 52-page book is designed to support the clinician working with babies during the first year of life who have suspected or confirmed neurological problems. This easy-to-use reference tool gives the therapist a detailed look at the treatment of babies, with a focus on the child with cerebral palsy. The text also presents the development of basic postural function; that is, the ability to move through gravity and explore the world. The NDT approach is included in the illustrated treatment rationale of this manual. This hands-on resource includes

*

principles of NDT

*

early warning signs

*

comparison of normal and abnormal movement components

*

a description of grading touch In her insightful introduction, Ms. Boehme offers clinician-readers sound suggestions such as:

*

Know the process of normal development to be able to identify where the baby is blocked in development and what is interfering with his or her ability to control posture and movement.

*

Grade your sensory input; as light input used with patience and sensitivity will be more effective.

*

Understand that the parents are in crisis; the challenge is to help the parents reach a level of acceptance of their baby. Also included in the book is a glossary of terms. Clear line drawings and descriptions help the therapist give the type of sensory motor input consistent with normal development.
